Leave Donna alone!
I love this Drums, into a Wharf Rat that gives me shivers. The break before "I'll get up and fly away" is beautiful, and say what you like about Donna, her backing vocals add yet more depth.

Terrific MTX. As for the show, the 1st set is great. In the 2nd, the jams go nowhere, Garcia's guitar is out of tune for a lot of the suite, and Donna is off key again.

The Matrix Series.......
How long will we have to wait? I do pay for official releases from dead.net - my last was 3 from the vault. I cannot fathom what they are waiting for. Plain white labels would be fine in paper sleeves - no need for these to ever go "out of print".

Matrix in the Hand
Is better than two separate sourced in the bush. These are exceptionally complimentary recordings that make for a staggering Matrix.
Highlights include a rare Jack-A-Roe (the third ever played) that has a nice rolling back-beat much different that how it was played in later years. The High Time is also rare Rare for 1977 and is beautifully rendered. The "Playin" sandwich is really pretty great for the era. Overall, this a standard great show from May of 1977 that's played with passion.
The addition of the matrix give a wondrous feel for the sound and space inside the coliseum without the crowd ever overwhelming the band or being a listening distraction. Like most of "Dusborne" matrices, these are not only exceptional technically but have a strong strength and LOTS of glorious Lesh pumped up in the mix. Perfect for headphones since the mix does not have too much separation that is better to hear on external speakers. Dusborne, I've listed too all of your Matrix mixes and they are just mind-blowing. I suspect you are a Phil Zone guy!
